The former shipyard area in which the hotel is located has an youthful and vibrant environment with restaurants, improvised beaches, art manifestations etcetra. There is always something new going on. The distance to the city center is no problem. In front of the hotel is the jetty from which several times per hour a ferry leaves for Amsterdam Central Station. It's free of charge and the trip by boat 10-15 minutes) provides stunning views of the harbor and city. If you book a room with a harbor view, you will have similar beautiful views from your room. The rooms are not large but comfortable. The bathroom is relatively large and well equipped. Friendly and professional staff.
